5:01 am
like some of us, slept through yesterday, you have another chance today of going outside. and actually enjoying the ten out of ten weather. bus stop buddy is back at camp, because he is celebrating national smors day. so, yes, there is the campfire, all ready to go to toast the marshmellows. yum yum. temperatures in the 60s today, of course you don't need to be at camp. you can make smors anyway. 69 degrees, sunrise time not until 6:08. sunrises are getting little later every day. because the days are getting shorter. so, all of the more reason to enjoy today's weather. lancaster at 60 degrees, allentown is, as well, the further to the north, hazleton at 55. sweater weather up there. 56 degrees in washington township, and cape may, with 69 degrees, 67 in rehoboth beach to start your thursday. your thursday will probably end up with a high of around 85, 86 degrees. another beautiful day, like yesterday, and yesterday's high actually was 86.
5:02 am
and that's perfect for this time of year. so, perfection will not linger into the weekends of course. we will talk about that, coming up in just a few, bob kelly? >> sue as our scout leader. story time and smors during our commercial breaks. 5:02. good morning, live look at 422, they're still out here working westbound, between king of prussia and trooper road. so, again, be careful, hit the brakes as you leave. here go, see the headlights, smoke the cones down, so again, a lot of the crews still out there. most of them are usually done between 5:00 to 5:30, the vine expressway open for bills. so come on down into center city. no problems there, working along route 70 in cherry hill, new jersey, 707 in haddonfield road. so watch for some delays. here is the scene of that scrap metal recycling yard fire. steve will tell us more about it in a second. but here in morrisville, sort of like a little islands here. but you can kind of see the glow from route 13, portions every route one, even the
5:03 am
jersey side, getting in, see the flames, and the glow there, from 295. they've been working on the schuylkill expressway, all night, from conshohocken, all the way into belmont avenue. we've had one lane for most of the night, almost cones are almost gone. and we're almost back to normal. you'll see dust cloud from overnight work. water main broke, broad street, south of the broad street off ramp of the schuylkill. that probably will cause some delays for the gang heading to the phillies game later tonight. karen, back over to you. >> thank you there, bob. we do have breaking news out of bucks county continuing crews are on the scene working to get the upper hand on a fire, big one, burning at a scrap metal recycling yard. they've smoke that you can see, all over the place, for miles. lot of pictures of this one. steve keeley is out there with what's going on right now. steve? >> reporter: well, we had the advantage of the comfortable weather at night. sue said you can turnoff the air conditioner, maybe open window have, a fanning on, the disadvantage now if you live anywhere around this, if you have the windows open, chances
5:04 am
are you may be waking up from the smell of smoke coming in your house. because as they got this fire from 9:00 last night, under control, after 3:00 in the morning now, here we are, after 5:00, and we're seeing smoke start spreading all around in every different direction, even though it is dark out, we can still see white smoke all over the place. and we did not smell smoke, even though we were close, right outside the entrance, you see the big phrase on the bottom: we buy scrap metal. that's what was burning, and it is not just scrap metal. but everything that gets recycled, everything that gets brought in with the scrap met al. a lot of times you have some chemicals still around, some tanks, whatever it is, and you never know exactly what's burning when these scrap yards catch fire. and it is always a stubborn fire. and real dangerous fire for the firefighters. now, look at the video that our man ryan flanagan shot for us last night. this is right in prime time. he got this video. you will notice, these
5:05 am
volunteer firefighters and firemen, they're up in these bucket trucks, and they're breathing this stuff in. and they're getting real close. that's the only way to get the fire out. and the reason it took so many hours to get it under control some this is such an isolated area here at this former u.s. steel plant site, that they didn't have enough fire hydrant, so they had to use fire tanker trucks, to truck in the water. that's why all of the roads around here, half the side of the road is wet. it didn't rain here overnight. that's all the watt their was coming out of these trucks, as they were going back and forth making, you know, 500 laps to get water to this site so they could finally somehow douse this fire, and we, are as we come back to a live picture, close to a fire hydrant. they've got a yellow fire hose snaked through here. you can see all of the roads around here now with flares, karen, people were driving over this fire hose until the falls township officer came out here and started putting flares on two roads closest to the main gate here to keep people from driving over the fire hoses, and maybe hitting
5:06 am
one of the people out here in the street. and one thing we just saw, a levittown firetruck just towed out of here, so the truck broke down somehow, and they had to tow it out of here just as sue was doing her weather. so still trouble, still work, still problems, and again, if you're either on the trenton side by 295, as bob said to you, or if you're in the morrisville falls township, anywhere in lower bucks, probably seeing the smoke, and chances are you're probably also smelling now, as well. >> such a busy news day, steve, thank you. at least they're out there, got it under control. we have to tell but this, multiple people recovering after being shot in new jersey, in bridgeton, last evening. right around 10:00. this is the scene from skyfox. the 300 block of north pearl street. they called out the medivac choppers to race people to nearby hospitals. we're still trying to get the latest on the conditions of the victims, in that case. also, nearly, five months after police found a mother and her little boy stabbed to
5:07 am
death, horrifically in their own home in burlington county, investigators are begging for some new information. they want to get the killer offer the streets. they need people to come forward about what they may know in connection with this case. there are victims, 38 year old sa -- sashi, and her six month old son, anish found dead in their maple shade home in march. prosecute verse reached out to the indian cultural center of south jersey for help. >> we really need is information, if anybody saw something that, you know, on that night, and they've been reluctant to talk to law end foesment, we ned them to be comfortable to talk to us. >> investigators say at the time that the victim's husband found the bodies in the bedroom, after first he didn't finds anybody at all, when he came home that evening. the prosecutor says his offers has spoken with family member, but they need more informatio information. 15:07. there was a police chase in northeast philadelphia last night. after there were some report after guy caring two pretty
5:08 am
serious weapons. police say they found a ar15, and an uzi in the back of a carve a man who led them on a chase from philadelphia to bensalem. that's how it wounded up with the truck up there in a ditch. so first of all they heard some reports of gunshots, being fired off, at industrial complex. when police get up there to the scene they see a guy toss ago gun into his truck and driving away. they followed. he drives away, and do catch up with him and take him into custody. >> definitely a kerr, ar15, major focus right now, specially with all of the crazy lunatics out there shooting up people and stuff. so yes, it is scary. >> reporter: police are still investigating the gunshots at the complex that started the whole thing. there was a tense stand-off with swat team negotiators in delaware county, and it ends with a sheriff's deputy in the hospital. there was guy who allegedly through a molotov cocktail at police and then barricaded himself into a home in collingdale, scene from skyfox. police had to serve arrest warrant for a parole
5:09 am
violation, the suspect ultimately gave himself up. and was arrested on attempted murder charges. going from bad to worse. the explosive hit a deputy who needed to be raised to the hospital with burn wounds. >> he is in good spirits for what he went through, and his birthday is tomorrow. so this probably isn't what he was expect to go dot night before his birthday. >> recovering on this birthday of his, investigators later found more of those molotov cocktails in the suspect's home. it is another day in court for the penn state fraternity brothers accused of a deadly hazing ritual. today's hearing is to determine whether those 16 beta theta pi members will stands trial in the death of 19 year old timothy piazza. that sophomore from new jersey. eight defendants, and the fraternity itself, are all charged with involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault. piazza died from a lethal dose of alcohol and then falling down the frat house stairs in february. a preliminary hearing is expected to last all day today and into tomorrow. >> north korea not scared of

5:35 am
it. to breaking news, happening in bucks county, crews finally did get handle on this fire, that was burning a huge fire at a scrap metal recycling yard. it went for hours. steve keeley is out there, and so are some of those first responders, steve? >> yes. hour nine, karen, you can hear them tearing apart with construction equipment, this big scrap pile, that was burning, and as they do, as we look over the trees, see new black smoke billowing up. because that means, as they pull this stuff apart, they're get to go new flames, as they tear it apart to try to put every flame out, and so the smoke going in every direction, around here, and again, we're smelling it now. hopefully, it is just okay smoke to breathe in. and for us, it is no big deal. these fire fight remembers a lot closer, and breathing in a lot more of the smoke. we're at the main gate of the simms metal scrap yard here, where they're buying scrap, and they've been turning away trucks, and we're told by the
5:36 am
guys that were talking to us over across the street, who work in this place, that this company has so many trucks, constantly coming and going, and they're doing a lot of business normally. it is not just metal. but, also, cardboard we're told as well. who knows what was burning, but it sounds like everything they got here, now, you can see, in ryan flanagan's video that he shot last night, these flames are really kicking up hi, and we see the firefighter even in the bucket, above it, where the smoke is coming right at him, and the trouble was not enough water, not enough hydrant back in this industrial park, in the middle of a scrap yard, which is understandable. so, they had to bring tanker trucks with water in here. and hopefully they got enough water to tackle this thing finally. but they got it under control at 3:30, after the initial 911 calls at 9:00. so it gives you a sense for all of these guys mostly volunteers. we just talked to one who left. just to go to his normal job. so it is a night of no sleep. when you see a volunteer firefighter, they're putting
5:37 am
their lives on the line for no money, and no thank you's, usually, so if somebody comes in, groggy, in the office today, buy him a coffee, buy him lunch. probably dozens of guys out here. this is one of those mutual aid fires where everybody available from all of the surrounding towns, don't be surprised if new jersey guys are going on there is as well, because we're right across the river from trenton, new jersey, where people are probably still seeing and smelling the smoke, as well as the folks in the morrisville, lower bucks area here, around falls township. karen? >> all right, steve, thank you. yep, we will buy them a cup of coffee. some good advice. 5:37. let's get to the situation with north korea now, responding to our president's tough talk, calling his warning, a load of nonsense. just the latest rhetoric in a escalating war of words. that could risk turning into a military action. let's go down to washington and doug luzader, and the latest twists and turns on this one, doug? >> good morning, and i guess we will start with the personal attacks, directed toward president trump. north korean general called
